unicolor is a sequel of works displaying a collection of visualizations. Its predecessors include
the works univrs/uniscope (2010) and unidisplay (2012). The installation unidisplay offers an
examination of laws of perception of the semiotics of signs. The work operates with a number of
modules, creating different visual effects to interfere with the viewer’s perception.
In contrast to unidisplay, the installation unicolor examines the psychology of color perception.
Fundamental starting points for the work are the chromatics of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, as well
as scientists like Hermann von Helmholtz,
Werner Heisenberg, Wilhelm Ostwald, and the visual artist
and professor Eckhard Bendin. Essential artistic influences of note include works by Josef
Albers and Johannes Itten.
unicolor operates with 16 modules that examine different forms of color perception. One module
that involves the perception of RGB colors that is animated in a high velocity sequence, visualizing
the process from slow to fast, thus evoking the optical effect of a grey surface in the visitor’s perception.
